Select the second
Use the Copy Item Properties and touch the first shape
Expect the second to take the shape of the first
|Tags||No tags attached.|
There are so many different attributes that one might wish to copy and paste ... some times,
and other attributes, some other times.
A fixed set of attributes will never fit all situations.
And beside, it's not clear what is copied and what isnt. AMOF I never know.
A fixed user config (in the parameters) would maybe improve that or at least document it lol. « Choose what the "copy style tool" copies »
But is that an application wide choice ?
I feel it's not : it depends on use cases, and it will vary inside a same document.
So it needs a local choice each time one wishes to use the tool.
Optionaly add a dialog featuring a list of sets of attributes so as to choose what to copy ?
Lets imagine :
CLICK on the button applies standard choices (or previous selection),
and SHIFT CLICK on the button first asks what attributes should be copied.
and what about a way to bookmark that complex selection of properties?
... we could name that a "frame style"...
